On Christmas afternoon, Darci, Taylor, Micah, and always I head over to my sister’s house.
Around the table at dinner, Taylor asked a question of the elders that started a powerful discussion.
“What do you wish you knew when you were our age?” (Taylor and his cousin Paul are 22, Micah and Paul’s sister Emma are nineteen.)
The answers from my brother-in-law, sister, mom, Darci and me were significant.
Then I asked Taylor, Paul, Micah, and Emma, “What have each of you learned in the past 12 months that will change the way you live the next twelve?”
Those two questions were the catalyst for the best conversation I can remember around the Christmas dinner table.
And I’m thinking it doesn’t have to be Christmas time to ask them.
